Well equipped room and a few minor hiccups taken care of immediately and graciously. Staff was great. Z - one of the owners- was helpful, kind, generous, with...

You cannot beat the views of Arenal lake and volcano at Pie in the Sky!! The quaint cabins up on the hill (owned and managed by Nancy, who also owns the Majestic Lodge, which is down the hill) are quiet, clean, and surrounded by beautiful rolling hills. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and also include a pool and yoga deck....

This is a value location at the booking prices. The Lodge is beautiful, clean, with wonderful views, a nice breakfast in the morning, and friendly staff. You do need a car which can handle dirt roads - nothing new in Costa Rica! We loved how quiet and tranquil this location is. There is very good hiking (without being too difficult),...

Would have been wonderful views unlawful weather. We were booked to stay in the guest house. When we arrived the person greeting us phoned Nancy and asked if we would rather stay in the self catering chalet which was normally more expensive. We agreed. It was a beautiful place but in hindsight would like to have stayed in the guest...

This was our second time visiting the Majestic Lodge/ Pie in the Sky. We were first there in August for a friends wedding and stayed at the slice of heaven atop the hillside... It was a life altering experience, not just because of the breathtaking amenities, view, land, and they throw an amazing party... Honestly, it is the people we...

This place was stunning. And the price was so reasonable. We stayed at pie in the sky in the two bed room with another couple and couldn't have asked for a better situation. The room! The view! The kitchen! Howlers down the hill ... And they are starting breakfast there soon too! I hope we can make it back there...
